Good to see a part that large sum of $ they received by selling a block of

Hi!

Can someone from AMSAT or ARISS state how much has been
raised in the campaign for the new ISS radio equipment?
The Fundrazr campaign currently shows $33,580. I recall
seeing a $2,500 donation made by members of the non-AMSAT
Facebook satellite group that went through Open Research
Institute. Adding the $110,000 from ARDC, it appears that
just over $146,000 has been raised for the new radio gear
from these 3 sources. And there could have been other
donations made outside of the Fundrazr campaign - i.e.,
the money jar ARISS had at its Hamvention booth.

It would be nice to know if the $150,000 goal has been met,
so that monetary concerns related to this project aren't
delaying the delivery of the new equipment to the ISS. And
meeting the goal doesn't mean fundraising efforts for ARISS
stop, either.

Thanks, and 73!

Listened on the 2030z pass from DM33. Nothing heard. Granted it was a low (7
deg Pass). Next pass not until tomorrow will listen again if time permits.

Subject: [amsat-bb] PSAT2 camera 'live'

Hello all!
As camera and downlink on 435.354MHz operates smoothly, we have commanded
the camera to take picture and store it into memory every 10minutes, this
mode should last from now for 7 days or at least to next commanding session
on Monday. The transmitting counter, which selects picture for downlink is
not sychronized with the camera, so there is uncertain delay between
acquiring a picture and its transmission of max.
64minutes. Every picture will be downlinked just once so every reception
counts. Of course downlink is not operating during eclipse.

Further info on https://github.com/alpov/PSAT-2/blob/master/README.md

               Enjoy the experimenting!

                                  Ales OK2ALP and Tomas OK2PNQ
